Elfrid Payton (strained left hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Celtics.
Payton missed the last six games and coach Frank Vogel said that Saturday’s practice will determine his availability for Sunday. After the practice, Vogel said that Payton looked great but his conditioning wasn’t quite there yet. He added that he may want to give him two more practices before deploying him against the Knicks on Wednesday. Shelvin Mack will make for a decent punt play in daily leagues as the starting point guard for the Magic on Sunday if Payton is held out.
